AboutUEL Students' Union provides advice, representation and activities for more than 13,000 members studying at two campuses in Docklands and Stratford. Both campuses have excellent transport links and a free inter-campus bus. We're currently undergoing a major transformation which has resulted in a restructuring of our staff team. We're currently recruiting eight new staff.
The new head of finance and administration will lead the strategic and operational finance function to ensure effective financial management. This will involve modernising the service offer, systems, policies and procedures, including bringing back in house the accounting and payroll functions. They will play a key role in developing the financial literacy and skills of staff, student officers and student groups.
Ideally, you will be CCAB/CIMA qualified. However, we will consider applicants from CCAB/CIMA part-qualified applicants with at least five years’ experience. You will have significant experience in a finance role including preparation of budgets, monthly management accounts, forecasts, year-end financial statements and other reports. It would be helpful if some of this was in a charity or social enterprise. Students’ Union experience is not essential.
This is a part-time role (0.6 FTE, three days).
